An enjoyable read, but the first book was so much better. Cruel Paradise had some hilarious banter and steamy scenes, but that’s about it. Killian Black was a charismatic, sexy, powerful alpha male, and Juliet was plain. I didn’t feel too much for the character, not enough back story.
The epilogue, a big MEH. The whole book seemed rushed as if the author just rinse and repeat from the first book.
1) A powerful and charismatic man lacking moral character
2) A magnificent bastard
3) Killian Black
You don’t know me.
You think you do, but you don’t.
The only thing you know is my name, and even that’s a lie.
I’m king of Boston, lord of criminals, ruler of an underworld empire. Or am I?
Only one thing’s for sure: I operate alone.
Until I cross paths with a brazen little thief who sets my whole kingdom on fire.
Just as two wrongs don’t make a right, two villains don’t belong together. Especially since she’s the daughter of my most deadly enemy.
Taking her would start a war.
Keeping her would be suicide.
Making her mine would break every code of honor and defy all common sense.
Then again, where’s the fun in following the rules?
